Clemson listed as one of America's Best College Football Towns

Travel and Leisure magazine published an article listing America's Best College Football Towns and Clemson was included on the unranked list.

"You see them as soon as you pull of Route 85 and onto local roads," Travel and Leisure stated. "The orange paws are everywhere: painted on roads, covering driveways, and plastered on local businesses. The passion of Clemson Tiger Nation is undeniable and perfectly embodied by their fiery (and uniquely named) coach, Dabo Swinney, who has led the Tigers on a rapid ascent over the past several years. If you catch a game, be sure to be there before kickoff—the Clemson players touching Howard’s Rock and the Run Down the Hill onto the field has been dubbed “the most exciting 25 seconds in college football.”

The magazine knows that there is more to Clemson than just a football game.

"Outside of football, Clemson offers plenty of outdoor activities: Play a round at Walker Golf Course, generally regarded as one of the top college golf courses in the nation (the par-three 17th hole is shaped like, you guessed it, a tiger paw)," Travel and Leisure said. "Fill your day with water sports at Lake Hartwell, or stroll through the beautiful South Carolina Botanical Garden. Be sure to grab a beer at the famed ESSO Club, whose name comes from its origins as a gas station and grocery store and is known as one of the best college sports bars in America."

Other schools on the list included, Tuscaloosa, Al, Oxford Miss., Athens, Ga, Boise, Idaho, Morgantown, W. Va., Norman, Okla., South Bend, Ind., State College, Penn., Eugene, Ore., Madison, Wis., Ann Arbor, Mich., Columbus, Ohio and Austin, Texas.
